Big enough not to fit under ones nose but just right for a standard candle stick. Looks great with thick white ones. The burning candle in a trendy shaped holder adds a touch of charisma and sophistication to a considered romantic evening. Measures 7.9 in in length 1.61 in thick. Salvaged solid wood. Made by hand so it may differ slightly from the item pictured. A super cool approach to storing your candles!
